Replace missing teeth and restore your smile to its former glory with dental implants. Book with Dental Departures to have your dental implants in San Jose and save around 70% on the costs back home. Wouldn't you much rather have a fantastic holiday with what you've saved rather than give it all to your dentist?
Dental Implants were first carried out almost 50 years ago and are now a popular way to replace missing teeth. However, they are also fairly expensive, which is why many people are now traveling further afield to destinations such as San Jose where implants are considerably cheaper.
With a relatively short flight duration of less than 3 hours from some US cities San Jose is convenient enough to return to for multiple visits, which most implant procedures usually necessitate.
This compact city is ideal for leisurely strolls through its parks and neighborhoods and there are museums and galleries to immerse yourself in for an injection of culture.
The cost of dental implants in San Jose is one of the main reasons that people consider having their treatment here. Accommodation and flights for two trips and the dental implant is still usually less in San Jose than it is inNorth America– and patients get to have at least two holidays.
Understandably, some people are nervous about having their dental treatment overseas, especially as there are a number of myths surrounding the expertise of dentists abroad. One is that their training just isn’t as good as it is inNorth America. While this may have been true in the past it is rather a different story these days.
Dentists who see overseas patients as a matter of routine are very often trained overseas and are members of the same international organizations that your dentist at home is a member of. So, for example, we have dentists in San Josewho are members of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists or the American Dental Association.
Booking an appointment through Dental Departures ensures you will be seen by a quality-checked dentist, whose experience and qualifications have been verified, and who offer warranties on both their work and any lab work – giving you total peace of mind for your dental implants procedure.
The dental implant procedure is actually two separate procedures – one is for the replacement of the tooth root – and the other is the replacement for the tooth.
The first part of the procedure, or replacement of the tooth root, is the insertion of the implant. This is usually done in a day, but you may need to be available for 3-4 days so your dentist can check everything is as it should be before you return home.
The procedure involves the implant being inserted into the jaw bone. This is done by opening up the gum and drilling a hole into the jaw bone for the implant to fit into. The gum is stitched up once the implant is inserted and you will then have to wait for at least 6 months’ for the implant to fuse with your bone (a process called osseointegration) which will provide a very stable platform for your false tooth.
On your next trip you will have the crown (false tooth attached). Your dentist will take x-rays and examine your mouth. If everything has healed nicely impressions of your mouth will be made and the crown will be made by the lab. When it is ready, after a few days, you will have the crown fitted to an abutment, which joins the crown to the implant. You may need to be available for up to 10 days during this trip.
The process my take longer if you have bone loss in your jaw and require a bone graft or sinus lift prior to the insertion of the implant.
In the United Statesa titanium dental implant with abutment and standard crown is around $3,900, but the price you’d pay in San Jose is $1,200.
Even a couple of trips to San Jose for dental implants will still be less than just one implant at home – and you get to have two holidays in one of the most beautiful places on the planet.
